Michael Vick and the Eagles offense may need to keep scoring 30 points, because their inconsistent defense is in rough shape.
Rookie defensive end Brandon Graham suffered a torn ACL against the Cowboys, coach Andy Reid said on Monday. Linebacker Stewart Bradley dislocated his elbow and Reid said Sunday night he’s expected to miss the rest of the year.
The tune on Bradley changed a bit Monday. The Eagles are not planning to place Bradley on injured reserve yet and Reid said Bradley is out for “at least a couple weeks” and maybe more.
It’s worth noting the Graham’s role on the team wasn’t as big lately as you’d expect. Sheil Kapadia of Philly.com notes Graham only played 16 of 56 snaps Sunday night before getting hurt. Juqua Parker started and played most snaps.
